I'd be armed.

Yeah, are they not allowed to carry a gun?

Can USFWS bios carry a gun??

Not sure they can carry, lest they get confused with LE

Generally no. However USFWS employees in Alaska have been authorized to carry firearms for personal protection against wildlife while they are out in the field working. Typically this is a shotgun. Carrying a firearm for this reason is a personal decision and they do have to take a training course.

I'm unaware if this has been brought to the lower 48 with wolves and grizzlies being more prominent in some areas. This incident may cause that to happen.

There are also USFWS employees who can carry a firearm for invasive species control.

These people need the new Insta Inflateable CHOP Barrior.
Police proof, government proof, and charging griz proof.
Comes with a free mask to muffle the owners whimpers.

I don’t think Id ask
If I worked in the woods, I’d just have it
I wouldn’t advertise
Heading over to scout and shoot some gophers this next weekend
Will I have it with me ?
Maybe :chuckle:

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

I'd rather get fired,  than be mauled by a grizz relying on nothing but a can of vegetable oil
